Prior to joining his new crew, Navid represented my company in a very high profile litigation involving large sums of money. Navid was our lead lawyer, guided us through out the process and ultimately got us positive results far beyond what we anticiapted. I understand Navid's move to a smaller firm allows him to deliver the same experience and intelligence that he did on our case at a fraction of the cost that we previously paid him. He is my lawyer, and I will not use anyone else.

I was an expert witness for Navid Soleymani in a difficult case against the Los Angeles Sheriffâ€™s Department. Navid had the case pro bono but his work was thorough, fully committed and to the highest legal standards. I needed to watch the majority of the trial and Navidâ€™s skills as a trial lawyer were exceptional. He is also a very good person with whom to work.
and I recommend him highly and without reservation.

Navid is one of those rare breeds that understands the law inside and out, knows how to apply them to a diverse array of applications, and provides stellar service in the clients. Navid has represented my company in many cases over the last decade and has come out successful in all but one. He is honest, and a truly good person.
